The ship itself was a nice design with a relaxed feeling. The top deck pool area had a bit of a party atmosphere, although the pool itself was tiny with about 30 or 40 people in it most of the day. Cabin was spacious and pleasant. Most of ... Read more

Having cruised on Princess, Holland America, Oceania etc. Lots of disappointments with services of Costa Deliziosa. Strike 1 - the boarding procedure was hurry up and wait in line. Costa there are more efficient ways to embark ... Read more

Boarding was a battle. The bar staff with the exception of the main one on the second floor had poor service and the mixed drinks tasted terrible. We got the all inclusive and have regretted very much as my wife only had a few mixed ... Read more

This was my second cruise, and first cruise with Costa. I recommend cruising but potentially with a different Cruise company. From the first instance, Embarkation is a nightmare as it is very unclear to guests the process that they need ... Read more

We were on the ship during the dreadful storm in the Philippines, and as a large proportion of the crew were Philippino it was very difficult for them. There is not high enough praise for all the staff on the ship, they were fabulous. The ... Read more

The ship is sharp and well laid out . . . it is actually the same ship as the Carnival Legend/Miracle twins with a bit classier decorations and fittings. Costa out shines everyone on embarkation proceedings . . . but is in the "not ready ... Read more

I am utterly disappointed with Costa. Food is just HORRIBLE. Pasta is inedible - mostly soggy with awful weird sauces. We were dining at the top tier Samsara restaurant and they serve us the same yucky nonsense that they served others in ... Read more

COSTA DELIZIOSA: BALTIC CRUISE ALL GREAT PORTS BUT . . . 1. Bad food badly cooked. Absence of fresh ingredients renders all dishes bland, often breaded and undercooked, covered with glop. Even pizza and minestrone not Italian on ... Read more

Having never been on a cruise before, the decision to take Costa Deliziosa was based more on its itinerary than on the ship itself. However, the travel agent told us the ship was new, so our expectations about the ship and the places we ... Read more

We have cruised on Costa twice, in 2010 on the Luminosa, in 2011 on the Costa Deliziosa. I am amazed at the low average score. he last cruise we boarded the ship in Amsterdam. Reasonably fast boarding procedure but it will be faster if you ... Read more

We joined the cruise at Amsterdam, having made our own way there and spending a couple of days sight seeing before we embarked. Embarkation was slow and a bit haphazard, but we eventually boarded around 2.30, having arrived at 1.30. Lunch ... Read more
